Hmm, wow, did I really rant that long about CAD? Must have eaten something rotten to put me in a rotten mood.
Anyhow, this won't be a rant, I promise, but: I don't know why I don't like Skyrim.
The game looks amazing, incredible, stupendous, a real achievement, and I can say that without hyperbole or snark. I want to like it, I want to have fun with it, I just can't bring myself to play it for any extended period of time. I like dragons, and magic, and vikings using magic to kill dragons, and fun stuff like that. I thoroughly enjoyed the gameplay in Fallout 3, which is basically the same (except for the levelling system). Why don't I like Skyrim?
I'm hesitant to criticize the game because I doubt there's anything wrong with it, just something wrong about me, heh.
I guess one reason I don't like Skyrim is because I just don't feel invested in it. I don't care what happens to my character, I don't know enough about the Empire or the Stormcloaks to care why they're fighting over patches of dirt, and I don't really know what my purpose in the world is. It just feels like "Here, go and be awesome" and there's no frame of reference for what awesome is here.
I guess my problem is I need someone to tell me how to be awesome? Or that I'm just not awesome to begin with? Heh. The game just doesn't motivate me.
Am I the only one? Has anyone else felt anything remotely like what I've described?
